After an intense confrontation, the Cullens and their witnesses convince the Volturi that the child poses no danger to vampires or their secret, and they are left in peace by the Volturi. Main characters See also: List of Twilight characters Bella Swan : The protagonist of the series, teenager Bella is a perpetually clumsy "danger magnet" with dark brown hair and brown eyes.

She is often portrayed as having low self-esteem and unable to comprehend Edward's love for her. She has an immunity to supernatural abilities involving the mind, such as Edward's mind-reading ability.

After her transformation into a vampire in the saga's fourth installment, Bella acquires the ability to shield both herself and others from "mental harm" from other vampires. Edward Cullen : Edward is a vampire who lives with a coven of like-minded vampires known as the Cullen family, who feed on animals rather than humans. Over the course of the Twilight series, Edward falls in love with, marries, and then has a child with Bella.

At first, Edward feels a mutual hatred toward Jacob Black because of his love for Bella, but in Breaking Dawn, he comes to see Jacob as a brother and friend.

Bella is immune to his power as a human, but learns how to lower this "shield" after her transformation to a vampire.

He resurfaces in New Moon with a larger role as Bella's best friend as she struggles through her depression over losing Edward. Although he is in love with Bella, she initially sees him as just her best friend.

He and other tribe members can shape-shift into wolves. In Eclipse Bella realizes that while she does love Jacob, her feelings for Edward Cullen are stronger. Some events in Twilight take place in Phoenix, Arizona , where Bella was raised.

Volterra , Italy , is featured in New Moon , when Edward travels there to commit suicide and Bella rushes to save him. Jacksonville, Florida , is mentioned first in Twilight and second in Eclipse , when Edward and Bella visit Bella's mother, who has moved there with her new husband.


Seattle, Washington , is featured in Breaking Dawn when Jacob tries to escape his love for Bella, and when Bella tries to locate a man named J. It is also the location of a series of murders committed by newborn vampires in Eclipse. Structure and genre The Twilight series falls under the genre of young adult , fantasy , and romance , though Meyer categorized her first book, Twilight, as "suspense romance horror comedy".

When asked about the structure of the novel, Meyer described her difficulty in pinpointing the premise of the novels to any specific their category: I have a hard time with that.

Because if I say to someone, 'You know, it's about vampires,' then immediately they have this mental image of what the book is like.

And it's so not like the other vampire books out there— Anne Rice 's and the few that I've read. It isn't that kind of dark and dreary and blood-thirsty world. Then when you say, 'It's set in high school,' a lot of people immediately put it in another pool. It's easy to pigeonhole with different descriptions.

For instance, Twilight vampires have strong piercing teeth rather than fangs; they glitter in sunlight rather than burn; and they can drink animal as well as human blood.

Meyer comments that her vampire mythology differs from that of other authors because she wasn't informed about the canon vampires, saying, It wasn't until I knew that Twilight would be published that I began to think about whether my vampires were too much the same or too much different from the others.

Of course, I was far too invested in my characters at that point to be making changes Montgomery 's Anne of Green Gables series are a big influence on her writing. It doesn't matter where you're stuck in life or what you think you have to do; you can always choose something else. There's always a different path.

In particular, she says that her characters "tend to think more about where they came from, and where they are going, than might be typical. Meyer says that she does not consciously intend her novels to be Mormon-influenced, or to promote the virtues of sexual abstinence and spiritual purity, but admits that her writing is shaped by her values, saying, "I don't think my books are going to be really graphic or dark, because of who I am. There's always going to be a lot of light in my stories.

The dream was about a human girl, and a vampire who was in love with her but thirsted for her blood. Based on this dream, Meyer wrote the transcript of what is now chapter 13 of the book. Following the success of Twilight , Meyer expanded the story into a series with three more books: New Moon , Eclipse , and Breaking Dawn In its first week after publication, the first sequel, New Moon , debuted at 5 on the New York Times Best Seller List for Children's Chapter Books, and in its second week rose to the 1 position, where it remained for the next eleven weeks.

In total, it spent over 50 weeks on the list. She stated that Twilight was the only book that she planned to rewrite from Edward's perspective.

Meyer has since put these twelve chapters on her website so that her fans could read them for free, [31] but has put the project on hold indefinitely due to her feelings about the situation. She stated, If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story.

In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely. The reimagined novel has a more conclusive ending, seemingly precluding its continuation through the remaining three Twilight novels. While the books have become immensely popular, they have also generated much controversy. Positive reception Twilight has gathered acclaim for its popularity with its target readers.

I already knew much of the information, but there was just enough new to keep me happy. Alice's Human Life: Brava, Stephenie! You told me everything I wanted to know and so much more. Alice's human life was fascinating from beginning to end, although not in a good way.

In some ways, it's better that Alice doesn't remember any of it. One of the highlights of the Guide. Edward's Life: Not entirely complete, but I loved learning more about Edward's relationship with his parents, particularly his father. I already knew that his father was an attorney and they were fairly wealthy, but I loved filling in the gaps in Edward's story.

It was also fabulous to learn what degrees Edward has received over the years. I was happy to get a little more information about Edward's years as a traditional vampire: specific dates and one tidbit I'd always wondered about.

Other Vampire Biographies: While I was largely disappointed with the new information, or lack thereof, in the Cullen's stories, I was beyond impressed with the biographies of the Volturi, the Denalis, the Romanians, the Egyptians, the sites, and the Nomads. There was tons of information here, all new. We get detailed biographies of each major character's human and vampire life.

The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide

The Guide was worth downloading for these stories alone. They were the highlight of the entire book. Detailed histories of Aro, Marcus, and Caius which give us insight not only to specific events of their lives, but also to their personalities and motivations. I was so happy to learn about Alec and Jane's histories. Chelsea's biography was much more interesting than I expected it to be. The way the Volturi's motivations for ruling and claiming themselves as keeper of the law was skewed; I think Stephenie would root for a vampire coux.

I loved learning about how millennia of ambition and warfare built these covens and tore them apart. Amun's story was particularly interesting, especially how he has interacted or hidden from the Volturi over the years.

I was very happy to get a better idea of when the Cullens' first met the Denali's. Especially Victoria's stories. I don't like either character any better after knowing their backgrounds if anything, I like James even less , but I definitely understand them better. Victoria's human life and then how her talent for escape worked as a vampire was really interesting.Too add to her frustration, she also discovered that she could only "burn" one 1 person at a time, while her twin could immobilize entire army within a minute or two 2.

April 13, Imprint: There were so many wonderful bits of information in the Guide, things I never thought to wonder about and answers to numerous niggling questions.

It was awkward all round. I am evenly split between happiness and disappointment. The Asylum. The Guide also includes beautiful drawings of some of the settings in the books, props, jewelry, houses, and, my personal favorite, sketches of the Cullens, as pictured by Stephanie Mayer herself.
